The competition is held annually between July and October. Designers have two months to create and submit a positive design that responds to the theme of that year. An exhibition is held of the top 30 posters, and the winner chosen by a group of international judges (Michel Bouvet, Rico Lins, Dean Poole, David Pidgeon, Bobby Solomon, Michaela Webb). We then print 4000 copies of the winning poster and paste it all over the streets of Melbourne, Australia. And send a few off around the world too!
Be prepared for the announcement of the competition of 2011.!
We show you here the finalists of 2010.
It’s a beautiful day.
